Kehila Chadasha (translated, a new community) was founded in 1978 as a community that values Jewish heritage, history, and traditions through education, celebration, music, discussions, and social action. More

Upcoming Events


  • March Newsletter :

    The March Newsletter is now on the website.

  • March Mitzvah Project -- PG County Animal Shelter :

    Although the February Mitzvah Project has been extended, we are still launching the March Mitzvah Project this Sunday, March 1st. Please bring NEW animal collars, leashes, etc. (items to help with pet adoptions esp. kittens) and OLD towels and sheets. These will be donated to the Prince George's County Animal Shelter (and possibly the Montgomery County Animal Shelter as well.)

  • Volunteers needed for the Generations Project :
    In keeping with our March Getting Better acquainted theme, we will once again match Kehila veterans with our teens so the different Kehila generations can learn about each other.  Our past Generations Projects have inspired learning, forged stronger bonds, and helped the community realize how much we have in common and how much we can learn from one another.

Heartbeat and their message

Nine members of Heartbeat arrived this past week in the U.S. to bring a message that affirms a hope in the creation of a shared society, a truly just and democratic society where Israeli Jews, Israeli Palestinians and other minorities can live together in peace. Their message is applied through music, music they create together. They sing in Hebrew, Arabic and English.
